Do the chocolates, flowers or romantic dinners really matter on Feb 14th? No. It’s a thoughtful gesture, but what really matters is expressing your love and appreciation to the most important individuals in your life rather than celebrating the bells and whistles. Perhaps you don’t have a significant other, well express those feelings towards your closest friends and family.
Sure, Valentine’s Day is just another corporate holiday meant to make an extra dollar off of us, but the least you can do is phone, text, email or visit those who have truly made an impact in your life and simply say, “I love you.” You just never know when it might be your last opportunity to say those 3 little words.
And by the way, you don’t have to wait until Valentine’s Day to share those loving thoughts. These power messages tend to mean a great deal more when they are delivered unexpectedly.
